After the creation of the three storylines, the team decided to publish Birthright and Conquest as separate physical releases. This was because packaging them as a single release would have required selling the game at a two-game bundle price, which would have been unfair to people who only wanted to play one version. Another reason for this decision was how easy it had become to include the other versions as cheaper downloadable content.

The concept for different versions of the game originated from Producer Hitoshi Yamagami's memories of the first Fire Emblem, which allowed for choosing different protagonists but did not change the story. The team decided to create multiple versions of the game, wanting to play from both sides of a conflict and show both sides as neither good nor evil. Their initial plan was to include a single choice between one kingdom or the other, but Yamagami wanted a neutral path where neither side was chosen, so a third version of the game was planned as DLC.

On December of 2012, Shin Kibayashi was approached to write the Birthright storyline. He almost refused the offer due to his work schedule, but after playing through a copy of Awakening with his daughter, Kibayashi decided to accept and wrote an initial draft story.

Despite his initial commitment of a ten-page summary for each storyline, he became fond of the characters and the full summary for Birthright extended to 500 pages. After delivering his work, he then wrote summaries of equal length for Conquest and Revelation, driven by the need to create a high-quality story.
